3d-Printed Rocket Buzzer

Rocket Buzzer

At the last rocket launching I attended, several of my rockets greatly exceeded expectations and were likely swallowed up by the universe at large. Two things might have helped: a smaller parachute and/or a tracking device.

This tracking device is based on a design by Adam Nehr, published in the March/April 2022 issue of Sport Rocketry. Mr. Nehr’s excellent article is nine pages long, so you should probably read it for complete instructions on how to use this tracker.

My design does not require soldering or messing around with epoxy, nor do you need to buy and then modify the battery holder. The red part is 3d-printed in PLA and only takes about ten minutes on my Dremel 3D20.
